Friedman Provides One Of The Biggest Nylander Updates Yet

Elliotte Friedman has dropped some major news regarding William Nylander and his future with the Maple Leafs.

Friedman's Massive Nylander Update



The future of William Nylander with the Toronto Maple Leafs is still uncertain, with few updates available. However, a recent hint from Elliotte Friedman on his 32 Thoughts podcast gives us some insight into Nylander's plans for his NHL career and his role with the Leafs.

Friedman believes that Nylander truly wants to stay with the Maple Leafs for his entire career. It seems he's committed to Toronto, but there's a significant gap in the contract negotiations regarding how much he should be paid. As of now, it doesn't look like they're close to reaching an agreement.


"I do believe he's being sincere when he says he wants to be a Leaf for the rest of his career. I believe that's where his mind is at. We're at an impasse about what each side thinks the numbers should look like... but I haven't gotten the sense that anything is particularly close at this time." - Elliotte Friedman

Staying in Toronto for the Long Haul?


Based on this information, it's clear that Nylander and the Leafs haven't figured out the details of a contract extension yet. Nevertheless, Nylander's preference is to stick with Toronto for the foreseeable future, if not for his entire NHL career.

We'll have to wait and see whether Nylander secures a long-term spot in Toronto or if he eventually gets traded for a top-notch defenseman. What we can gather from Friedman's comments is that Nylander doesn't seem eager to leave the only NHL team he's ever known anytime soon.
